What is this insect and where does it come from?

We have a tiny white insect on our Pyrex cookware. Pyrex was on the counter and we noticed this "dot" moving....then we noticed there were several. They are so tiny and I can't even describe them. But they were moving! And I washed all the items inside the cupboard and sanitized the cupboard and they are back. What are these?

    Sounds like psocids, also called "booklice". They're commonly found in cupboards, around books, stored groceries, etc. They like humid areas best. You can buy a special insecticide for them, or you can hire a professional exterminator.

    capture some in a container or with scotch tape and show them to a pest-control guy. they usually know-sometimes the guys at the garden shop of Lowe's or Home Depot know, also!
